THE EAGLES have found their replacement for GLENN FREY . . . and it’s Glenn’s son DEACON FREY.
In an interview yesterday . . . (With Dallas sports radio station KTCK) . . . Henley said, quote, “Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task.”
He added, quote, “There’s an old system both in Eastern and Western culture called the guild system, where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice.
“The trade, the craft, the business is handed down from father to son. I think it’s the only appropriate way to carry on.”
The Eagles are doing those two weekend gigs this summer: Classic West at Dodger Stadium in L.A. on July 15th and 16th . . . and Classic East at Citi Field in New York, on the 29th and 30th.
They’ll be joined by Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Journey, Earth, Wind & Fire . . . and one more musician Henley refused to name.
